    Two things I learned today...

    One: Bloomberg TV Canada shut down back in October 2017 and was quickly replaced by Bloomberg Television in the states.

    Two: BNN is expected to rebrand as "BNN Bloomberg," creating a new partnership between Bell Media and Bloomberg and overtaking the previous one from Channel Zero. Also, Bell Media will have the rights to Bloomberg Radio through iHeartRadio Canada.

    The first incarnation was operated by Channel Zero.

    Original programming consisted of an hour-long show at 4pm ET, first titled The Daily Brief and later Bloomberg Markets: Canada, hourly updates during the business day and a nightly show produced 3-5 times a week called Bloomberg North.

    The rest of the day consisted or simulcast programming of the US service and it maintained the same on-screen data heavy format.

    Channel Zero pulled the plug in Sept. 2017, claiming they couldn't start a radio version of the operation in Toronto. To their credit, they did try and apply for one of the few remaining FM licenses in 2012 to no avail.

    I didn't hear of Channel Zero stiffing them on their severance pay (look up CHCH-TV if you haven't already).
